Sen. Rick Scott, Rep. Ocasio-Cortez go back and forth, she has hard time with sarcasm

Social media gives us the opportunity to connect with people in an instant. Sometimes this is a good thing and other times that’s not the case.

For instance, Florida Sen. Rick Scott and New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had quite the spat on Twitter Monday. Even though they both work in Congress and could easily meet in person, they decided to go back and forth on social media.

It all started when Scott was going after New Jersey Sen. Cory Booker’s newly-unveiled gun proposal. In doing so, he went after Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal by mocking it, saying that “Maybe @AOC will make makes us register every time we buy meat as part of her #Green New Deal.”

Well, of course Ocasio-Cortez couldn’t let this go and just had to respond but she showed she’s doesn’t quite understand sarcasm.
